– Remove fish skin with a boning or paring knife. To do this, put your fillet on the cutting board with the skin side down, and make a cut to separate a small flap of the skin in one of the corners closest to you. Grab the flap, and slide the knife between the skin and the fillet. Make sure to slide the knife all the way under the fillet, trying not to leave any of the fish meat on the skin.
